Coming Soon: Books on the Hill

The Bethlehem Area Public Library is bringing a new library service to Fountain Hill. We purchased a used, no longer road-ready bookmobile and are turning it into a mini-branch to be located right next to the pool at the corner of Spiegel Street and Stanley Avenue. We are calling it Books on the Hill. Books on the Hill will be staffed by a BAPL librarian (hours to be determined). There will be a rotating collection of books and other library materials as well as free WiFi. Reserve items may be sent to this location from the Main Library for ease of pick-up.

Acclaimed children’s book author/illustrator Zachariah Ohara has been hired to create original art for the exterior of the vehicle. It’s going to look so great!! We expect  this new service to be available by the end of this year, exact date to be determined.
